ADDED SUGARS VS NATURALLY OCCURRING SUGARS:
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Sugars added during food preparation or processing like table sugar (sucrose).
Naturally Occurring Sugars
Sugars naturally present in food such as lactose in milk and fructose in fresh fruits & vegetables.
Total sugars is the sum of added sugars and naturally occurring sugar in your food products.
Fruits, veggies and dairy products contain sugar and bring along many beneficial nutrients, so you don’t have to cut sugar entirely from your diet. Just remember to consume these foods according to the Malaysian Food Pyramid. You can also find them in your MILO ingredients!
